for this region?

 

Tupungato is a wine region in the Uco Valley of Mendoza, Argentina. It’s named after the town, which is surrounded by the high altitude vineyards (the name in local Huarpe means “star viewpoint”). These high locations ensure plenty of sun exposure to ripen the grapes, which benefit from a longer growing season than other locations closer to the valley floor. The Andes mountains shelter the vineyards from precipitation, however melting water that runs from the peaks is the natural source of irrigation. 
 
The dominant grapes cultivated are Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Syrah, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Torrentes.

  • Acordeon Chardonnay 2012

    Snoothrank:

    A bit earthy and sandy on the nose with light lemon and petrol aromas. In the mouth it's very light and thin with medium minus acidity, showing lots of lemon flavors and just a hint of nuttiness on the finish. Read More

  • Jean Bousquet Grande Reserve Malbec 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A very bold wine when it first hits the tongue but fades quickly. I'd recommend this wine for dinner because it won't be overwhelmed by the food. It is heavy, fruity, and for me required a good bit of aeration before the tannins were tamped down to acceptable levels. Read More

  • Catena Alta Chardonnay 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Pretty oaky and creamy on the nose with hints of heather and almonds supporting ripe green apple and almost melonny/pumpkin like fruit. Big, rich and a bit buttery though with plenty of supporting acid. This is a rather flamboyant wine, full of toasty oak spice and vanilla flavors that work well with the honeydew melon and green apple fruit on t... Read More
